@ms.christmas_deer:  I’m not sure and actually just recently received an early gift, as well. I’ll look forward to the response on this one.

I send thank you notes as soon as I receive something. I had some generic notes I used until I got our official ones printed, but I didn’t want anyone to wonder if we received their gift. It also keeps them from piling up and having to write all of them at once!

Write one up the minute you get a gift, if you have the time.  You will sound more excited, they are more fun to write one at a time, and you won’t have to keep track of who sent what (unless you want to remember). 

And, the person who sent it will be happy to hear that it was received, in good condition and appreciated sooner rather than later.

You can always send an additional thank you for attending the wedding after the wedding (in fact, you should).

Send one now! AND… please do keep track of who sent you what (and you can also add a place where you write that you did thank them, in case you can’t remember later.) I neglected to keep track of who sent me what prior to the wedding! I just sent a note off and forgot about it! BOOOO!!!! And now I have no idea who sent me all these lovely gifts! (We only wrote down the gifts that we received at the wedding!)

@ms.christmas_deer:  I’d say send it, since the gift arrived. that way they won’t worry wondering what happened to it between now and then
